Dogwood Healing Arts treats the following conditions:

 

Emotional Well-being

Chinese Medicine views the body and mind/spirit as two sides of the same coin.  Physical symptoms and emotional symptoms are both manifestations of an imbalance in the body’s essential energy.  Acupuncture can have a powerful effect on restoring emotional balance, reducing stress and creating an overall sense of well-being. 

Common mental/emotional conditions treated: anxiety, depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), insomnia, anger/irritability, stress, addiction, and dissociation.


Pain and Sports Medicine

This is what Chinese Medicine is best known for addressing.  Like a beaver dam in a river, pain is a block in the body’s flow of energy.  Acupuncture removes the dam and re-establishes the smooth flow of energy, thus eliminating pain. 

Common conditions treated: migraines, neck and back pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, IT Band syndrome, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel, plantar fasciitis, TMJ, arthritis, acute sprains and strains.
